Item Description:
Wow! We are excited to offer a choice original example of this key early Bust dime. The surfaces are clean with the sharp details we'd expect from an XF45.

We note a light planchet flaw in front of Liberty's chin, but this is trivial and as struck. Another interesting feature is a large die crack through the numeral 7 in the date.

Whether seeking a first-year type coin (for all U.S. dimes!) or a date-set collector, the next owner of this coin will likely enjoy it for many years as part of a great collection.
